Indian Literary Criticism: Theory and Interpretation
Indian Literary Criticism: Theory and Interpretation
Description
From the Jacket:

"Contemporary Indians", says G.N. Devy, "seem to be afflicted by a sense of amnesia in relation to literary history." The affliction is more severe, he feels, in the sphere of literary criticism, not only because older texts are generally unavailable, but also because modern India has lost touch with both the language and the ethos of the critical texts of ancient and medieval India.

Students of Indian literature need to have access to India's critical tradition. This volume takes a step towards providing it and giving teachers, students and scholars-in-the-making easy access to some of the key concepts and ideas in the Indian tradition of literary theorizing. In doing so it brings together in one volume some of the most significant literary thinkers in the Indian tradition of the last two millennia.

About the Author:

G.N. Devy (b. 1950) was educated at Shivaji University, Kolhapur and the University of Leeds, UK. Among his many academic assignments, he has held fellowships at Leeds and yale Universities and has been a Jawaharlal Nehru Fellow (1994-96). He was Professor of English at Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (1992-96).

His After Amnesia - Tradition and Change in Indian Literary Criticism (Orient Longman 1992/1995) was given the sahitya Akademi Award for 1993.

G.N. Devy is at present Chairman of the Bhasha Research and Publication Centre, Baroda, as well as Director of the Tribal Training Academy at Tejgadh in Gujarat. He was given the SAARC Writers Foundation Award 2001 for his contribution to Indian criticism.
